Me day

That's a bit of a self-indulgent post title......but today is my birthday, so it's my day!


There are no mad celebrations planned - just a gentle day......a dog walk, lunch with a friend, a haircut, and time at home to potter, which will hit the spot perfectly. Maybe some crafting...I'll just see how it unfolds. And for anyone who's curious I am 44 and proud of it! All I can say is life gets better and better as you get older. I certainly wouldn't want to be back in my twenties or even thirties, so mid forties here I am!

The tulip photo was taken in my garden a couple of days ago - I was expecting the dark, moody almost black of Queen of the Night, but these have come out paint box red. They were planted very late and are a little stunted, but the colour is so vibrant. Inside the petals it looks like someone's added a few swirls with a paintbrush. I wish now I'd planted more.

Have a wonderful "me" day, Diana! Happy Birthday to you! I'm 45, and I agree these are the best years for me so far.
Hugs,
